The Mini DVR Pro On-Body DVR is powered by four AA batteries or a low-voltage DC power input combined with low power drain for full portability.

Established FFV Products at IBC 2005:
a) OMEGA Deck Digital Video Recorders FFV's OMEGA Deck is a high-performance, low-cost DVR that delivers all of the advantages of digital video and non-linear random access that have made it the de facto replacement for analog tape decks. The deck's new chase lock feature allows synchronized playback from multiple OMEGA decks. The OMEGA is offered with an optional serial digital interface (4:2:2 SMPTE 259 -- MC 270 Mbps).

b) DigiDeck Digital Video Recorders Part of the DigiDeck digital video recorder family, DigiDeck PC maintains analog composite and Y/C outputs, with optional RGB/component outputs, while allowing users to record video as QuickTime files and view those files simply by connecting the DigiDeck's removable drives to a PC.

c) Recon Board-Level DVR Fast Forward Video's Recon is an ultra-compact digital video recorder board aimed at digital motion-image recording applications in broadcast, surveillance, and industrial markets, among others. Based on the same broadcast-quality feature set as the company's award-winning OMEGA Deck, Recon boasts high-quality MJPEG image resolution along with a small size of only 2.8 in. (71 mm) by 3.9 in. (99 mm). Recons small size, low DC power consumption, and ability to record hours of video and audio on fixed or removable IDE hard drives and solid-state memory make it perfect as a field-portable, on-body, or in-vehicle recorder. Recon can be integrated easily by OEMs into new or existing equipment as an on-board digital video recorder. Recon users also now have the ability to view and store Recon-generated video clips on standard computer systems.

d) F-Series Timecode Generators The F-Series from Fast Forward Video is the original series of low-priced, high-quality longitudinal timecode generator/reader and character inserters. Today they remain among the most popular products of their kind on the market. The F22 and F30 are rack-mount products, 1-RU high, that are widely used in video production and post production.
